Recreational fishing trip 31st December.

On Tuesday 31st December six club members boarded charter boat "Strongbow" out of Poole skippered by Dick Peckham. With a strong south easterly wind blowing it was the skipper's suggestion that we look outside the harbour and see what the conditions were like before making a decision where to fish. It was a bit choppy but was possible to fish outside so we went to an eight-mile mark hoping to find our target fish whiting. When we dropped anchor, Malcolm Stote was the first to catch whiting of about 1 1/2lb mark. His best of the day was one of 3lb 1oz. The rest of us were slowly catching up with Malcolm with the odd conger eel as well. Robin Lane managed a small eyed ray weighing 4lb 11ozs.
After a number of hours, the weather worsened so we headed back to harbour for calmer conditions hoping to fish for flounder but with no success. These recreational trips are for the anglers who wish to fish without the pressure of competition rules etc. They are also for anglers to learn from the more experienced anglers on these trips. If anyone is interested in joining these trips contact Robin Lane on 07876 471901. A big thank you to Dick for a good day's fishing.
